Cheese
Whatever their origins, Greek cheeses are among the finest in the world, and many varieties have been accorded protection under the European Union's Protected Denomination of Origin (PDO) provisions.
Feta and white goat cheese top of the list of Greek cheese and they are highly regarded for its variations - semi-soft to semi-hard, mild to sharp - and for the many ways it can be used - in baked goods, casseroles, appetizers, mezes, with fruit, and as a table cheese. Hard, salty cheeses like graviera are enjoyed grated, fried, and served as mezes and appetizers.
